For the past week, Natyam Rajanatha has been working to print Luggage tags, for the upcoming 2014 Innersearch to Mauritius. The tags are being made out of wood, and etched using the monastery's laser printer. It takes about an hour for each print, so as you can imagine, it's a slow process. The pieces of wood are first coated with shellac, ensuring shine and protecting them from burn marks as the laser cuts through them. Natyam first printed the backs of all the pieces. Now the front are being done. This includes the final cut-out of each tag, which uses the laser at high strength to cut completely through the wood.
